Transcendental Naturalism/TN/McGinn: Definition "scientific sentence": so we shall call a sentence whose meanings do not produce specific philosophical confusions, but which refers to puzzling objects.

  2. laws to their combination.
  3. The resulting complexes. (McGinn, formerly "CAlM" combinatorial atomism with lawlike mappings).
